A Pakistan court has rejected the National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) request for the further physical remand of Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif in the money laundering and illegal assets reference and sent him to jail on judicial remand.

On Tuesday, an NAB team presented Sharif before the court in Lahore on expiry of his previous one-week remand and sought his further custody for 14 days to "complete investigation", Dawn news reported.

The investigating officer (IO) told the court that Sharif refused to answer the queries during the remand, adding that when he was confronted with details of his bank accounts, he ignored.

Rejecting the claim, Sharif said that the interrogators visited him only for 15 minutes during the last week.

He said that all questions the interrogators asked him had already been answered and mentioned in the reference filed before the court.

The judge then turned down the NAB's request for Sharif's further custody and sent him to jail on judicial remand till October 27.

The NAB had arrested Sharif on September 28 after the Lahore High Court dismissed his pre-arrest bail in the money laundering case.
